The world we live in

"No job unless you're Polish: Biggest Asda meat supplier excludes English speakers as 'all instructions are in Polish'", headlines The Mail on Sunday. Compare and contrast this with the headline: "Checks to see if foreign out-of-hours doctors can speak English 'go against EU rules'" - in The Daily Mail.

So, an English-speaking British worker can be refused a job in his own country because he does not speak a foreign language ... which is almost certainly against EU law, although it is not enforced. Yet a foreign doctor cannot be refused a job in England because he cannot speak English ... all because of EU rules, which are enforced.

And the reason we should not rise up and slaughter them all is?
